Bead Wish List: Glass Pendants

There’s nothing like a beautiful art glass pendant to pick you up when you’re out of beading ideas. All a really fantastic focal needs to become a fantastic necklace are a few beads in coordinating colors.

I like to pick up a pendant or two on sale whenever I shop for beads, and hold on to them for those times when inspiration is hard to find. Here are some of my favorite pendants and focals:
